SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL SUICIDE PREVENTION MONTH. TO HELP SPREAD THE WORD AND RALLY WITH OTHERS IN SPREADING THE WORD, I AM PULLING SOME EPISODES FROM THE ARCHIVES WHERE GUESTS SO BRAVELY SHARED THEIR STORIES WITH DEPRESSION AND MENTAL HEALTH.
If you need help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
THIS IS A RERUN OF EPISODE 35 FROM FEBRUARY 2021 WITH A NEW INTRO RECORDED.
Today's guest on The Your Shining Self Podcast is Karen Robinson. Karen and I both recently shared our stories, as co-authors, in the Get Past Your Sh*t book!
I love it when a woman is brave and willing to be vulnerable to show up and share her story. And that's what Karen did joining me to talk about her suicide attempt. We chat about what was going on in her life that led up to the suicide attempt, life after, and where she is in life today.
We also chat about the whole ‘it's selfish when someone kills themself' aspect of suicide. This has always bothered me when people use that phrase about suicide – I've always felt well those people don't know the pain and hopelessness the person was feeling. But listening to Karen play “devil's advocate” it suddenly made me think about it from a new perspective.
